Namahage Izakaya

This is booze:


And this is a namahage:


Namahage are essentially Japanese boogie men. Parents use them to scare the shit out of their kids. "Be good or the namahage will come get you!" Dude, hella scary!


The izakaya aptly named Namahage features both booze and namahage. Here they come!


They scream at you.


If it's your birthday they will apparently spend an extra minute screaming at you.


Happy Birthday... I guess.


Namahage come from Akita prefecture, up in the north. Akita is famous for Japanese sake. Who knew!


Snacks and shit are good here.



Namahage nabe?


You can check their website here. Budget about 4000 yen a person for food and booze. This place is in the heart of Roppongi, where I got offered "Titties" 4 times on the walk from the station to the restaurant. Namahage goes on the list of things I wouldn't mind doing late in this horrid cesspool of sin. I'm gonna start a list. Besides Namahage:
More to come... I hope.

With the advent of technology, people have moved ahead in terms of standard of living and day to day life, but we have accompanied many unwanted things as well. One of them is stress! There is no proper definition of stress but those into science define it as unrelated response of human body to external force. Gurgaon Escorts
